I am a high school math teacher in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I have been an educator for about 20 years. I absolutely love to travel. I caught the travel bug while I was at Ball State in Muncie, Indiana. I spent 3 months in Europe with a great group of students and my best friend Kat Metzger. I now have 4 children of my own and my husband and I try to take a family vacation every year to have them experience the world around them. Another best friend and colleague, Lori Heiges and I were lucky enough to be awarded the Teacher Creativty grant from the Lily pharmacutical company. We traveled to the U.A.E, India and Nepal this summer (June '09)on a very exciting journey.
